Get to know the #Hornets assistant coach who already had ties to Charlotte before joining James Borrego’s staff in September. Oh yeah, his role also includes helping develop LaMelo Ball and Kai Jones.

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Fitting way for the Warriors to seal this win: Payton, the spark, gets a stop/strip on LaMelo, turning into a Jordan Poole layup to cap his 31-point night AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
GP2 just turned over LaMelo for his third steal, then blocked Bridges.
Chase Center gives him a standing ovation when subs out – 12:21 AM

J. Michael Falgoust @ThisIsJMichael
Draymond on that switch v LaMelo. Name me 10 other 4s who can defend that in iso? I’ll wait ….🙄 – 12:19 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Hornets auto double anytime LaMelo is defending in the post – 12:14 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
That was a terribly reckless charge attempt from Steph on LaMelo. Had no chance of getting there and really undercut him. – 12:04 AM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Awkward fall for LaMelo on his back after a drive to the basket, He’s writhing in pain. – 12:04 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Hard to overstate how bad LaMelo has been guarding Jordan Poole tonight. Just gave up two more wide open 3s to him that Poole missed. – 11:37 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
First technical of the season for Draymond Green comes in the seventh game. Arguing an illegal screen call he got near halfcourt picking off LaMelo Ball. – 11:28 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
No, Bjelica in conventional PnR defense against LaMelo isn’t going to work. – 11:02 PM

Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
More tremendous defensive anticipation from LaMelo. PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
LaMelo sleepy time allows Poole to fade to the corner for a wide open 3. – 10:54 PM

Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
Please stop bailing Golden State out with mindless deep 3’s, LaMelo. Go to the bucket, no one can stay in front of you. PM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Poole starts on LaMelo, Curry on Rozier and Wiggins on Hayward – 10:17 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
First play of the game: LaMelo Ball whipped an attempted cross court pass that nailed Jordan Poole in the face. Warriors forced to call timeout, Poole is hurting. – 10:12 PM

Looking forward to getting back at it with @DDDGURU on @957thegame from 12-3 today. Charlotte in town, and like it or not, James Wiseman and LaMelo Ball will be forever linked. Lots to talk about today! – 1:52 PM
